UK band SULK have announced their new album No Illusions will come out on April 15th via Perfect Sound Forever. Today, the band has shared the video for the album’s first single. “Black Infinity (Upside Down)”.
The band released their debut LP, Graceless, in 2013. The ten track album was recorded and produced in Brussels by former Suede, Pulp and White Lies associate Ed Buller and mixed by Jonas Verwijnen and Antti Joas in Berlin.
After releasing Graceless and having done numerous shows and tours, including a full UK tour with Happy Mondays, SULK entered the recording studio to continue their journey on the musical atlas’s uncharted routes. Big Jelly Studios, a converted Neo-Gothic church located in the seaside town of Ramsgate, was the host of a month long recording session. Supervised and conducted by producer/mixer Jonas Verwijnen over twenty demos blossomed into a colourful mix of well-crafted pop tunes. Sticking to their basic musical values of classic indie, pop, shoegaze and psychedelia, but adding elements of motown beats, sitars, Love-esque vocal harmonies and Lynchian cinematic atmosphere SULK’s sophomore creation, No Illusions, stays true to its heart yet elevates itself to a point seemingly different to its older sibling.
